Virtual Civil Legal Clinic
The New Orleans Public Library is partnered with with Southeast Louisiana Legal Services (SLLS) to offer a virtual legal clinic for eligible Library users. The legal clinic focuses on assisting low-income families and individuals with civil legal issues involving areas such as the following:
- Landlord-tenant disputes
- Federal tax issues
- Public benefits (SNAP food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security)
- Consumer issues
The clinic does not handle personal injury, criminal cases, or malpractice cases.
It takes place every 2nd and 4th Wednesday. Library users are asked to sign up ahead of time for an appointment to speak with an attorney by phone or video conference. Appointments are limited.
If you have additional questions or would prefer to sign up by phone, please call any of our Library locations for assistance.
